  1. I mean Vandal is pretty fitting. In the trailer she's vandalizing public space. But Demaha? Come on, now, now that sounds a bit silly :P I'll be in holidays when the new patch launches so I won't be able to play it til 5th September. Oh well.

    Let's see how much NCWest is gonna screw this one up.

    Painter got HARD NERFED on the last "balance patch" in KR. Lasers are useless for damage now. USELESS. The only true usefull laser is the one that increases your physical and magical def by 2000 for 10 seconds, and can be reused in 10 seconds. It has a 0.5s cast and it has to proc in a player for it to work, but still, that is a good laser (previously the other variation of that daevanion laser did a shiton of damage).

    There is no more aetherhold 100-0. There is no stun + laser = dead now. All lasers apply every 1s, and they only start doing damage AFTER 1s of being applied. All painters on KR are running in damage build since the nerf to try and make up for the lasers.

    It is still a strong class, but nowere near what it was at the start. For open world I'd still play gladiator. They need to nerf life leech of gladiator. Maybe limit to 1-5k per hit instead of the 20-80k that you can leech now? Roflmao...

    Yes, but that is for 7.2. We're still very much behind 7.0, so 7.2 would come next year at least. Painter's damage is absurd because all it takes is to cast those ropes on ya and your HP is drained in 3 seconds.

    what @Kubei-DN said :).

    And did u read what I said? I said that it's a good Initiative from NCWest, the starter pack, just there's more usefull stuff to add there and I wouldn't mind paying a little extra for more. Then I gave the example of what  Gameforge offers for a higher price. like the pet, its almost useless now a days( unless it has  a pouch, the one included on the pack doesn't).

    I think for instance, ok it only gives u a legendary T1 gear, outdated, but legendary T1 a better started then lakrum xD. 30 days GP better than 7 days prestige etc...

    But in EU it's a higher price(10/12$). 

    Keep them comming NCWest and do more deals like this :)

    The difference is that you can farm GP very easily (goes about 55m on Stormwing Asmo server). We were "promised" (and I use this word loosely) by Cyan that we would get a tradeable Prestige pass, something like EU has that can be bought from the broker. Prestige is actually around $15 which is more expensive than EU's GP.

    i see more and more people like gameforge!...why?!...there you play until lvl 25...after lvl 25 you're "locked" if you dont have a gold pack! last instance you can do there is norchasna training camp lv 25...after that you can not play without the gold pack on!

    I'm not sure where do you get that from. Even without the gold pack, you can level up til 80 and play the game like normal. They even made weekly kinah sale same as for those with GP (around 300m), but you can't use broker or LFG.

  5. EU starter back is offering only 2 transformation contracts compared to NA's 15. The Black Flame gear is outdated, aka tier 1 in 7.0 (Voidsoul set). 100 transparent scrolls vs 20 on EU. Yes, it might be expensive with more things in it, but I think the offer is fair on NA for once. 

  6. You know, I was reading this thread and reminded me of something. The game Shaiya came out roughly in 2006, the lore revolved about a goddess named Etain that created a bunch of races (dragon race included), in a world called Teos. Because she wanted to get rid one of the race, she was killed and she was split in two (sounds familiar yet?).

    Then half of them wanted to revere this cute innocent goddess while the others wanted to revere this sexy and busty one.

    If they've removed the shugos from CoE, how do I get my ancient Daevanion skills?


    You won't. The removal of CoE shugo was meant to be for 7.0 (since CoE is removed as well). This means they removed it earlier without letting players know nor giving a chance for players to get it. You have to wait til the new patch comes where you'll get the Ancient Daevanion Skill from a quest in Dumah.

    Will it still be possible to promote legendary winged champion into ultimate? 

    Yes. See https://aionpowerbook.com/powerbook/Item/110150040 as an example-


    For non-crafters who get fragments from deing crystal gear - cheaper/more efficient to do it now or in 7.0?

    I would say now, but getting fragments isn't hard. What may cause "shortage" for mats is the Etium, which can be obtained from Herelym, quests in Dumah and some legion quests upon conquering the altars. "Stelium" is also kinda rare.

    Thank you for contacting Aion Support Team.

    Upon checking, the Shugos specifically Great Smuggler Shukirukin has been removed from Aion during the 6.5 Update which is why you will never see them spawning in Cradle of Eternity along with Clumsy Smuggler Shukirukin. 

    If you have any other inquiries, please do let us know.

    Now, the question is, how many ninja nerfs happened during 6.5 launch that we're not aware of? Why wasn't this announced in the patch notes?

    How about a lil optimism here guys instead of all the doom and gloom eh? Every new patch in nearly every game I play when released will have some bugs to be worked out that just goes with the territory when writing code. As long as it's playable that's what matters. The bugs can be worked out.

    Y'all can continue with the GloomyGus attitudes and Deep Dark Subterrainia Depressions if you want for everybody is entitled to their opinion. However for me, I'm choosing to remain optimistic as I've played 7.0 now in both Korea and EU and I feel it is a definite and positive improvement to the current state of Aion, a game we ALL love. (Smiley Face).

    You can't compare KR or EU to NA in any shape or form. I play EU too and know how 7.0 feels. This is NCWest we're talking about, what we will get is a nerfed patch not worth wasting your time on. It's a shame, had they put more effort in pleasing the playerbase once in a while, the game would've been thriving.

    not to sound arrogant but to answer the question 7.0 will come when its ready. :D cuzi would much rather prefer them not to gives us a broken half baked patch so let them take their time plz.

    It's gonna be very broken. That's all I can tell ya.

    This creates inconsistencies though. The Aion Power Book uses the original translations for example. Bastion of Souls makes same {"sense" as the Narakkali because at least the Narakkali are the race of mobs that reside there as far as I know, what does "Bastion of Souls" add to the story? Holy Tower also might make more sense than Frozen Monolith. The epople who name those also make the back story so the naming is more relevant, sure thing nobody cares to read any background stories about Aion because the stories are all over the place, but the names we have are most of the times irrelevant to anything.

    That's only because the creator of Powerbook plays only EU and cares little for NA. Narakkalli may focus on the race, Bastion of Soul focuses mostly on the location and what's inside, and the souls can be related to the prisoners of Daevas in it. I never saw how Holy Tower made sense. What's so holy about it? It's a monolith flying in the sky above Nergal. There's no inconsistencies because the story is the same with just different names.

    We have plenty of different names, like we have Frozen Monolith while EU has it Holy Tower. Plenty of names are different between the two English publishers and I think EU is closer to the Korean names than we are. Bastion of Souls is "Narakali" I think in EU. Even items have different names and in some cases it is better, like Omega Enchant Stone for us, A.P.E.S. (yes apes) all powerful enchant stone in EU. When I read their forum at one point and everyone kept talking about apes, I was sure they were playing a different game :D

    Someone really has a ton of time in their hands rethinking all the names for everything.

    I actually prefer NA names better. Veilenthrone, as an example, is a fancier name that has a nice ring to it compared to just "Senekta". Bastion of Souls has kinda more sense to it than Narakkalli.

  14. Dumah map is huge and reminiscent of Levinshor, Kaldor, Tiamaranta and Katalam all mashed together. Since there's more gears to obtain (mostly Tier 2) it can actually get confusing so to where to go first. The obvious idea is to do BoS (now solo) and FM (which is 3-man) but they did nerf the PvE attack and defense compared to the older gears. It has more stats but sacrificing PvE Def a lot. After that, it's IDD and PF (easy mode where Frigida doesn't transform)

    Painter class is fun for a while until you find yourself repeatedly using 3-4 skills which are mostly the draining ones (where you shoot at the enemy and there's this huge band draining their HP). Despite being physical class, it wears cloth and is equally squishy like a SW or Sorc.

    Conclusion: A lot of people will hate 7.0 for sure (what a surprise) and the new class. NA will also nerf lots of things that KR/EU have.

  15. Just stick with Painter as class name. Really, there's no point in changing that because there's not many words to replace it. The closest they can get to is Artist.
